Honda CB750 Cafe Racer


It’s been a while since I posted anything with a candy-flake paint job, but here we go. One 1974 Honda CB750 done up as a thoroughly retro cafe racer. Easy Rider meets Quadrophenia.

While the bike is cleanly built, it is probably the paint that stands out as the nicest single thing about the bike. Love it or hate it, it is well done. It is obvious that the builder put time and effort into getting this bike done, but there aren’t really any high-zoot parts bolted on other than the nice gas tank. Overall, a good effort…

    Interesting motorbike. I like the exposed front springs, the exhaust has a clean look, the little fly screen above the headlamp, all nice and clean. Paint…well, interesting, not bad just interesting. However, the seat / tail..gotta go.

    All that work and no rear sets. Whats up with that ’32 ford tail light? Sorry, but all that work doesn’t get the proper credit until those two things are addressed and done right.

      Rear-sets are the one thing that get left off of so many cafe racers. Maybe it’s generally a money or fabrication issue? The taillight is an easy change, though…
